Ellie Gall’s Catherine Langford starts things off by saying that “From now on, I’m in charge” and that appears to be very true for when ‘Stargate Origins‘ kicks off on February 15th, 2018. The latest installment into this beloved franchise will be kicking off on “Stargate Command” the new all-access streaming portal to the Stargate universe that allows you to check out anything from the franchise which has been released to date, a ton of fun extras, and new content. In this prequel series, we see a younger Catherine as she deals with the desert, Nazis, and just being a woman in a man’s world while trying to make the discovery of a lifetime.
The show will have 10-episodes and if it does well will likely launch more content in the future. As to if it will tie into existing continuity or not for future installments still appears up in the air.
